Winter Run/Walk & Coffee - Chicago

This is a coach-led group run in Chicago, Lakeview East . We meet (most) Sundays through (at least) April at 9:00am at the NW corner of Sheridan & Oakdale in front of Hero Coffee. If it’s super cold, wait inside; restroom there as well (for that make sure you have a mask). We will run/walk a 2-mile loop (I will have maps of longer loops for any over achievers!) and then gather back at Hero Coffee for post-run fueling and friendship (again masks required while ordering, etc). This is a great way to get moving on cold mornings!

It's FREE - but everyone MUST officially join here and sign this waiver before joining the group for the first time. Once you join, you will receive a link to the STRAVA and FaceBook groups to stay in the loop with changes in the schedule or meeting place and to connect with other members.

Maximum Number of Members Included in Membership: 1
